Poverty Dimensions of COVID-19 webinar series

In response to the emergence of COVID-19 the Bristol Poverty Institute launched a new webinar series in 2020 to explore the wide-ranging and complex poverty dimensions of this global pandemic. This webinar series aims to bring together a variety of participants representing different sectors, with a range of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary approaches.

We recognise that different professional, academic and civic communities will have access to difference sources of information, datasets, and tools for analysis, and may also have different immediate priorities. We are, however, all driven by the ultimate aim of reducing the negative impacts of this global pandemic on all aspects of society, and particularly on those communities and individuals who are already experiencing disadvantages. By bringing together a range of perspectives we seek to improve our understanding of the poverty dimensions of this pandemic, and by extension our ability to influence policy and practice in order to mitigate its negative impacts.

These webinars consist of a series of presentations (average 15minutes) from each of our panellists, followed by Q&A. These events are open to everyone from all sectors and countries. For upcoming events in this series please visit our events page.
